PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The Oregon Department of Transportation is getting a little help from sasquatch on their new crosswalk safety campaign.

ODOT recently released a public safety video featuring the famous mythical creature, reminding Oregon drivers about being aware of crossing pedestrians.

In the video, sasquatch, also known as bigfoot, is attempting to cross an intersection as a car approaches.

A neighbor reminds sasquatch that every intersection in Oregon is a crosswalk and all pedestrians have the right of way.

The driver of the car waits patiently as sasquatch proceeds to walk safely across the street.

According to Oregon law, drivers must stop for people showing intent to cross the street, regardless if it is a marked or unmarked crosswalk.

ODOT officials said the public service announcement’s aim is to remind Oregon drivers to be alert and aware of pedestrians, cyclists, and “mythical furry forest creatures.”

Watch ODOT’s sasquatch video on YouTube or on the ODOT or Metro's Facebook pages.
